E21 hood & trunk roundel logo emblem thingies

Post by Jeroen »

After Tom's Q here's some info as we did some digging on the Dutch forum recently. Nowadays BMW supplies flat plastic bonnet logo's as standard, but for practically the same money you can get a high quality steel based example with some relief. They recently reintroduced them and I fitted one immediately!

Available models (front):
Old school metal with relief: P/N 51 14 5 480 181
Flat plastic replacement for E21, E30, etc: P/N 51 14 8 132 375
Latest version for F10, F30 etc is more flat and doesn't have the pins anymore, has adhesive tape on the back: P/N 51 76 7 288 752

For the trunklid there's no old school version sadly, only one version for the rear and that one's flat, P/N 51 14 1 872 328

Hi

I've just rang my local dealer who says that part number is now obsolete - I tried describing the item but they were of no help. Can anyone confirm that this part is again no longer available?

Thanks

Hi Jeroen,

I've spoken to another dealer (Berry Chiswick) who told me this is NLA in the UK. Is there any possibility you could get it for me and I reimburse your costs?

Looking forward to your message! Didn't think it'd be such a mission to get a metal emblem

I just received a new one from the dealer. For the UK, including VAT, standard shipping and PayPal fees that would be € 39,50.

Pls send me a PM if you want one.

Why? Select the correct part no and order it at the dealer...
